A few months ago, the graphic designers at TheGRQP released a series of wildlife-themed prints about San Francisco neighborhoods. Pacific Heights is a fox. The Castro is a peacock. Japantown is a goldfish. And so on.
The prints were lovely, but one neighborhood was conspicuously missing: Bernal Heights.
So in an email, I says to them, I says:
Hey! What about Bernal Heights??! We’re famous! We’re glamorous! Plus, I’ll do the research for you. Here is the animal you should associate with our neighborhood.
They received my suggestion warmly, and now the Bernal Heights print is available for sale.
San Francisco’s neighborhoods have such personality, and we at the GRQP believe each tends to bear a likeness to a particular animal. High atop their perch at the microwave tower, these owls watch over Bernal Heights. Every night they remain vigilant for the residents and wildlife alike. It is these owl’s dusk to dawn duty, nay, their nocturnal mission to keep this neighborhood safe. Whether you live in Bernal Heights or not, with these owls on your wall, you won’t help but feel protected.
Notice also the cameo appearance by Sutrito Tower.
Yaaay! The image 11×14, and printed on archival paper. And just $22! I just ordered one for the Cub Reporter’s bedroom.
